Coomers raises over £3,500 for Macmillan
Published: 20 March, 2017
Coomers Timber & Building Supplies presented The Haslemere and District Committee of Macmillan Cancer Support with a cheque for £3,551.64 following a raft of fundraising events.
The independent builders' merchant adopted Macmillan as its charity of the year in 2016 and raised the money at corporate events including a charity golf day, via in-store collections, and participation in the Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. As well as helping with the medical needs of those affected by cancer, Macmillan also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. The Haslemere & District Committee was formed over 30 years ago and works to raise funds locally.
Over £21,000 has been raised for Coomers' annual nominated charities since 2010. This year, the family business is supporting Broadlands Group Riding for the Disabled, based in Medstead.
